Council is committed to inclusive, transparent and value adding community engagement activities and outcomes. To reaffirm this commitment, Council has developed a draft community engagement framework and policy and is seeking public feedback on the documents.

The developed framework details Council’s aspirations to proactively engage the community, where engagement will likely be value adding, while also ensuring a level of consistency when deciding to engage and conducting engagement activities. In developing the framework, Council considered industry best practice, with much of the framework underpinned by the International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) Community Engagement Model and the IAP2 Public Participation Spectrum.

The draft framework document and policy will be advertised for public exhibition and community feedback is welcome until 5PM 28/02/2023 (AEST) (the closing date).

You can view the Community Engagement Policy via this link and the Framework Document via this link.

Community members can provide feedback, during the public exhibition period, by completing the feedback form via the button below.
